You are wondering about something that actually is hitting the nail on the head Mr. Bond. The point of this event is to bring together all the different type of minds which are associated with the future of the arts and creative entertainment fields.
Each speaker has been selected because of a particular point of view they have on the arts, entertainment, success, IP creation, and even entrepreneurship. There are CEO's, artists, visual effects gurus, strategists, visionaries, lawyers, agents, investors, producers, members of the media and more who will be sharing their truth and unique point of view. They are giving back to the industry and the community by sharing their time with all of us.
It will be a very well rounded show. Keep in mind that only half the speakers have been announced so far too, please.
For example, Alex Seropian--Alex founded Bungie, created multiple worlds from his vision and that of his team, and then sold it to Microsoft. Later he and the leads completed their contracts and formed a new creative company called Wideload Games. Wideload helped change the way games get produced. He then sold it to Disney and took over as head of their interactive games business. Recently he left Disney (just a couple weeks ago), to start a new mobile games company which is no doubt, going to lead in its space.
Alex's view on success applies to all of us, even if it is with art, music, or business, or any other endeavor. He strives for independent success first and foremost. He stays true to his vision, pursues his passion and he reaps the rewards. Millions have fun because of what he has made possible. He is just one example of those who will be with us and whom you will hear from.
I hope that answers the question, and that you will be able to join us. Even for the artists, the minds you would be most interested in will leave impressions that cause improvement, learning, and help them get better at what they do. This event is set to help all of us carve paths to success in any area we choose to do it, and the TED sized talks will be entertaining too.
